Landscape Design

Brindley’s Landscape Design team provides a comprehensive landscape design, masterplanning and ecology consultancy service to achieve well-designed landscape spaces which incorporate all relevant planning legislation, such as NPF4 and Biodiversity Net Gain enhancements.

We are an integrated landscape design, ecology and landscape assessment consultancy with an established record of providing evidence-based and responsive design solutions to deliver sustainable and high quality environments.

Our team of Landscape Architects are able to deliver robust and practical landscape design advice relevant to your project’s requirements.  Supported by in-house Ecologists and our GIS and Visualisations team, we supply tailor-made solutions regardless of your project’s size or complexity.

Our team includes Landscape Institute accredited Chartered Landscape Architects, CIEEM accredited Ecologists and CMLI accredited LVIA specialists.  Each member is cross trained in multiple skills; all team members are literate with myriad design software, are experienced with current biodiversity and landscape planning legislation, hold current driving licenses and include trained photographers experienced with Landscape Institute requirements.
